Adaptive Cruise Control
The maximum braking which is applied by
the ACC system is limited and can be
overridden by the driver applying the
brakes, if required.
Note: Driver braking will cancel Adaptive
If the ACC system predicts that its
maximum braking level will not be
sufficient, then an audible warning will
sound while the ACC continues to brake.
DRIVER INTERVENE will be displayed on
the message center. The driver should
take IMMEDIATE action.
When in follow mode, the vehicle will
automatically return to the set speed
when the road ahead is clear, for instance
• The vehicle in front accelerates or
• The driver changes lane to either side
or enters an exit lane.
The driver should intervene if appropriate.
Low speed automatic switch off
If the speed of the vehicle decreases
below 30 km/h (18 mph), the ACC system
will be automatically switched OFF and
the instrument warning indicator will go
If the brakes were being applied by the
ACC system, they will be slowly released.
This will be accompanied by an audible
warning, and DRIVER INTERVENE will
be displayed on the message center. The
driver must take control.
Overriding the set speed or follow
Whenever the driver is overriding the
ACC by depressing the accelerator
pedal, the ACC will not automatically
apply the brakes to maintain
separation from any vehicle ahead.
The set speed and gap can be overridden
by pressing the accelerator pedal when
cruising at constant speed, or in follow
mode. If the vehicle is in follow mode, the
instrument warning indicator will go out
when the ACC is overridden by the driver
using the accelerator and CRUISE
OVERRIDE will be displayed on the
message center. When the accelerator is
released, the ACC function will operate
again and vehicle speed will decrease to
the set speed, or a lower speed if follow
mode is active.
Changing the gap
The gap from the vehicle ahead can be
decreased or increased by pressing the
rocker switch (4), see page 109, on the
steering wheel. Four gaps are available
and the selected gap setting will be
displayed on the message center when
either button is pressed. After the ignition
is switched ON the default gap will be
automatically selected ready for ACC
Note: It is the driver’s responsibility to
select a gap appropriate to the driving
